    I'm trying to POST a login request via Postman like this:

    POST http://www.myurl.com/Sitefinity/Services/Security/Users.svc/Authenticate/

    with a body of JSON:


        "MembershipProvider": "OpenAccessProvider",
        "Password": "my-password",
        "Persistent": true,
        "UserName": "my-username"


    But that gives me a 401 unauthorized error with a message of "You do not have permission to view this directory or page."

    The route and parameters appear to be right based on what I'm seeing in the documentation at /Sitefinity/Services/Security/Users.svc/help. Any idea why I can't POST to that method?
